Brenda Perry, Director , Alamance County Veterans Services, was nominated for Alamance County’s SOAR Award for Employee Excellence during the 2nd Quarter, FY 2014-2015. Below is an excerpt from the submitted nomination form.

Brenda displayed knowledge, courteousness, professionalism, respect, and clearly went above and beyond the call of duty. She took the lead and has the passion to coordinate the first Veteran’s Day parade in Alamance County. No one pushed her to complete this task it was her willingness and drive (along with Tammi) to honor our Veterans with a parade. With all of the other responsibilities she has she took on this most important task.”
